FAIRFAX COUNTY, VA—The snow has stopped after the weekend’s winter storm, but efforts continue to clear snow from roads and walkways around Fairfax County Monday, Jan. 14.

The Virginia Department of Transportation clears all but a few private roads in the county. The agency tweeted that interstates and primary routes have been cleared, and crews are working on residential streets Monday.

Residents can check the status of plowing on roads at vdotplows.org. Check real-time road conditions at 511virginia.org.

Homeowners are asked to clear sidewalks in front of residences and businesses to keep them safe for pedestrians and particularly children and those with disabilities or the elderly.

Fairfax County recommends that you consider shoveling the following seven places:

  • The sidewalk in front of your home
  • The sidewalk in front of vacant homes or homes where residents are unable to shovel
  • Fire hydrants
  • Bus stops (there are more than 4,000 in the county)
  • Sidewalks/paths that lead to schools or community buildings where snow has been removed
  • Bike trails
  • Storm drains
